Uber limits how much you can tip drivers

Tech Industry
So I saw that Uber finally let you tip drivers, as of June last year, right? Yeah, they did. But did you know there's a limit on how much you can tip? No way, I didn't know that. It's crazy, a lot of the drivers don't even know. All right, well let's take a ride. I wanna find out more about this. Okay, let's do it. [MUSIC] [MUSIC] So what's the deal? You can only tip Uber driver's a certain amount? Yeah, within the app you can only tip to a certain amount either 200% of the cost of the ride or $100. Wow so 100 is the absolute maximum. Right. So what if you wanna a driver say cash for example? You can definitely give cash. That's fine but a lot of people don't carry cash any more. So what has Uber said the reasons behind this limit? So Uber says they wanna avoid typo mistakes or fat fingers. So you know when you type in $10 but by mistake maybe you put 100? Then the passenger won't have to go through the hassle of getting that money back. And so competitors like Lyft, do they also have this limit on tips? Yes, Lyft also has a limit and theirs is actually a little lower. It's It's 200% like Uber, but then $50 limit. And what are drivers saying about this? It seems a lot of drivers don't know about the limit. From all the drivers that I've talked to have told me that they have never heard of the limit, so if they come against the limit, they're really surprised. [MUSIC] So Jacob, have you heard about this Uber tipping limit before? No I haven't. What do you think about it? One hundred dollar tip. That's a weird tip for a driver already. Of course I want to get more. What is the biggest tip that you've ever had? Probably about 20 dollars. Yeah, I never got a $100 tip before this. So, I wrote a big story about this, all about the tipping limit, and how the app works, so you should read it. [MUSIC]
